c) 6). b) 7).
c) 8). b) 9).
d) 10). b)
Solution:
1).
Number of heads = B + D = 7 …(i)
Number of legs = 2B + 4D = 20 …(ii)
From statements (i) and (ii)
B = 4 and D = 3
Answer: c)
2).
Required distance = 10 + 5 = 15 km
Answer: c)
3).
A + C= 70 yr
B + D = 80 yr
B + C + D = 120 yr
C = 40 yr and A = 30 yr
A + D = B + C
30 + D = B + 40
D – B = 10 yr
B = 35 yr and D = 45 yr
Answer: c)
4).
There is no ‘F’ letter in the keyword
Therefore, the word FIST cannot be formed
There is no ‘K’ letter in the keyword

6).
As, 5 × 6 + 3 × 3 = 39
And 7 × 5 + 4 × 4 = 51
Similarly, 5 × 5 + 3 × 4 = 37
Answer: c)
7).
As, 9 + 7 – 5 =11
And 6 + 4 – 8 = 2
8 + ? – 4 = 7
? = 11 – 8 = 3
Answer: b)
8).
As,
7 + 5 = 12,
12 + 10 = 22
And 22 + 15 = 37
Similarly, 3 + 5 = 8;
8 + 10 = 18
And 18 + 15
= 33
Answer: b)
9).
Let the number of keepers = x
Then, total number of legs = 2 × 50 + 4 × 45 +
4 × 8 + 2x
=2x + 100 + 180 + 32 = 2x + 312 [Hen = 2 legs,
Goat = 4 legs, Camel = 4 legs and keeper = 2 legs]
And total number of heads = 50 + 45 + 8 + x =
103 + x
[Hen = Goat + Camel + Keeper = One head]
According to the question,
(2x + 312) = (103 + x) + 224
x = 327 – 312
x = 15
So, required number of keepers = x = 15
Answer: d)
